Thirty percent of Americans have German blood in their family. I don't see any major difference in the engineering abilities of Americans and Germans.
I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on June 15, 1916. My father, an electrical engineer, had come to the United States in 1903 after earning his engineering diploma at the Technische Hochschule of Darmstadt, Germany.
Happiness is German engineering, Italian cooking, and Belgian chocolate.
There's an old joke that you know you're in heaven if the cooks are Italian and the engineering is German. If it's the other way around you're in hell.
Architecture begins where engineering ends.
Half of us are partly German! Half our language and culture, generally, in Anglo-Saxon terms, is German.
